About this event
The Shelby American Automobile Club Northwest is hosting an open track event at Portland International Raceway (PIR) on Thursday, August 20th, 2020. All makes are welcome. Our intention is to have a fun and exciting track day which allows you to drive your car on the world famous "PIR". If you have been itching to try out your performance car on a closed track or you have been doing it for 50 years we have the event for you. We will limit run groups to 20 cars each for four 15- 20 minute run groups: Novice, Intermediate, Vintage Exhibition, and Advanced. We expect to have 5 sessions for each run group. We encourage first time open trackers to see what you have been missing. There will be plenty of help with instructors for new or new to PIR drivers.
Note that we have added a new run group called "Vintage Exhibition Group" which will include all makes from 1978 and earlier. It will be slower pace with gentlemanly rules. We want this to be a no-harassment, low intensity, fun drive around with vintage cars and vintage drivers with the same 5 sessions. The same tech requirements will hold for the Vintage Exhibition Group.
Also note that we will have an all day track photographer with multi-photo packages available for a very reasonable price.
We have our 50 cars minimum and therefore, this is a GO deal!! Cost is $275 per car / driver with available $25 discount for all SAAC North West members. Use Discount Code: SAACNWMEMBER. If you are not a current SAAC Northwest member, you can purchase an annual SAAC Northwest membership for $36 and still receive the discount. If you sign up and choose the SAACNWMEMBER discount and are not yet a paid member, we will contact you for your membership payment. No problem. Please send me an email if you have any questions.
